Swimming Courses & Lessons - Pool or Open Water
1:1 or Private Groups - Open Water Swim Coaching
Whether you are a nervous or anxious beginner new to the sea or seasoned Triathlete, Open Water or fitness swimmer looking to make improvements in your swimming or hone your skills in sea environment as opposed to a lake or swimming pool, a 1:1 session or course of sessions tailored to your swimming needs is a good way to start. Open water sea swimming techniques and stroke work can be covered with a focus on swimming in moving water, small waves or choppy conditions, sighting and navigating a course, swimming straight, bi-lateral breathing and drafting.
I use open water MyDukes bone conducting headsets so I can commuincate directly with swimmers in real time and can speak to swimmers whilst they are actually swimming so feedback is immediate and in real time. I can also provide video analysis where required as this is often very useful for swimmers to see themselves and serves as a valuable feedback tool with stroke correction and technique work to improve streamlining and find the best way for you to swim as an individual. Some swimmers just need a little bit of direction to put them on the right path whilst others would benefit from some very individual help.
Give me a call today to discuss your needs or arrange a session at a convenient time to suit you or you or your group. Open Water 1-2-1 coaching and small group sessions will start on 29th March 2021. Do contact me to discuss a bespoke session around your requirements whatever your level.
1:1 or Small Private Groups - Swimming Pool
For the winter of 2020/2021 my 1:1 or small group coaching sessions will be held at Highlands End Leisure Club in Eype, Dorset who have a 20 x 9 metre pool heated to around 28/29 degrees. Bookings need to be made with me in advance although late space is sometimes available so it's always worth messaging me to see what I can offer.
Content can be tailored to the individual or group requirements working on technical areas of the strokes using drills to help. We can also look at swim fitness, endurance/pacing or just learn to swim front crawl (or any other strokes) from scratch, although this is not a "learn to swim" session. So whether you are a novice swimmer or more advanced this is a great way to hone your skills. I use the MyDukes headset so I can speak to swimmers whilst they are actually swimming so feedback is immediate and in real time.
Again, I am also able to provide video analysis where required by arrangement allowing swimmers to see themselves which serves as a valuable feedback tool.
Give me a call today to discuss your needs or arrange a session. Please try to book in advance where possible although sometimes I do have late space or cancellations so it's worth giving me a ring just to check. Also, I have slots on Saturday morning at Flamingo Pool, Axminster, Devon (when open again) from 7am until 8am. Other times/days on request. Highlands End, Eype Pool is not going to be opening before mid-May at the earliest as the restrictions do not make it viable for them unfortunately. If you would like to discuss future sessions for later in the year when pools are open do contact me to discuss a bespoke session around your requirements whatever your level.
